  1. Hi,

    I want to ship my HDD overseas to a friend. It has some sensitive data & I want to Protect that data using one of the 2 products called “Disk Password Protection” OR “Cryptic Disk” from Exlade.

    With Disk Partition Protection, I am able to Protect it by using a Password for booting it & another password for opening each Partition.

    My question is, would my friend be able to unlock that hard drive on an entirely different PC with different configuration ?

    Wouldn’t it create a problem even to detect it because the bios is different ?

    The other product Cryptic Disk protects the HDD by encrypting the data on each partition. If I used that software would my friend be able to Unlock it on a different PC ?


    Does anyone have a better idea & better software for what I want to do ?

    Thank You.

    as long as it is not a boot drive, yes you can use it. Of course the recipient has to have the key or program to unlock it.
